The revised electric Volkswagen e-up!, with an improved range of 159 miles, is now on sale from £19,695 (after the deduction of the £3,500 Government Plug-In Car Grant).
Volkswagen first unveiled the e-up! in 2013 as the brand’s first fully-electric production car, and it went on sale in the UK early in 2014. Since then the range of the e-up! has been boosted to 159 miles (WLTP), up from the original’s 83 mile potential, thanks to the addition of a larger lithium-ion battery pack with a net capacity of 32.3 kWh, up from 18.7 kWh in the previous-generation car.
The range-topping e-up! features heated front seats and a heated windscreen, climate control, rain sensing wipers and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors. Cruise control is also fitted at no additional cost.
